A. It is a minor hardware update to Apple's popular Mac mini computer.

A. 256GB, 512GB, 1TB or 2TB internal PCIe-based SSD.
Q. Can the internal storage be upgraded at a later date?
A. No.

Q. I don't want macoS 10.15. Can I install/run an earlier version of macOS on it?
A. As the 2020 Intel model is almost identical to the 2018 model, it should be technically possible to install macOS 10.14 Mojave on it, but no version prior to that - see this article on Scripting OS X.
